Given the slim likelihood of payout, I still bought into the pool
at work last week, and probably will buy into the next one. Part of
it is "Social Currency", having something to talk to people about.
Part of it is paying for a chance to fantasize about winning for a couple
of minutes. On the flip side, just think how bad you'd feel if you
didn't buy into the pool at work and it DID hit! Like going to
a Casino, you're paying for entertainment. In moderation, probably not
the worst thing in the world.
